Baller Alert’s Today in Hip-Hop: ‘Brown Sugar’ Released 15 Years Ago

On Oct. 11, 2002, the hip-hop film ‘Brown Sugar’ was released in theaters. Starring Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan, Mos Def, Queen Latifah and more, ‘Brown Sugar’ tells the story of a best friend duo who form a bond from childhood to adulthood through their love for hip-hop.


Sidney Shaw (Lathan) is the editor-in-chief of XXL while Andre Romulus Ellis (Diggs) is an A&R for Millenium Records. Throughout the film, the two find themselves questioning the current state of life, hip-hop, and of their relationship. While they both are romantically involved with other people, they soon realize that they might have had real love with each other all along.


The film stars hip-hop icons like MosDef and Queen Latifah, but also features cameos from Big Daddy Kane, Common, Pete Rock, Slick Rick, and more.
